Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley Announces Third Slate of Congressional Endorsements for the 2022 Midterm Elections


Boston, May 5 - Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley today announced her endorsement of Rep. Katherine Clark (running for re-election in the MA-05), Rep. Jim McGovern (running for re-election in the MA-02), Rep. Jimmy Gomez (running for re-election in CA-34) and Charles Booker (running for Senate in Kentucky), marking her third slate of Federal endorsements ahead of the 2022 midterm elections. 


“Katherine, Jim, Jimmy, and Charles are all principled, committed, compassionate leaders,” said Rep. Pressley. “They are leading voices in Congress and their communities on issues ranging from the rights of workers, access to transit, and safe, affordable housing, to racial, economic, reproductive, and environmental justice. Their perspective and their advocacy are essential to advancing equity and justice for all of our communities, and I’m excited to continue working alongside them to organize, mobilize, and legislate for progress.”    


Congresswoman Pressley made history in 2018 when she became the first woman of color elected to represent Massachusetts in the U.S. Congress. During her time in office, Congresswoman Pressley has introduced landmark legislation to combat the crisis of childhood trauma, codify the right to abortion and comprehensive reproductive care, abolish the federal death penalty, fix our broken clemency system, cancel student debt, and more. She serves on the House Committee on Financial Services and the Committee on Government Oversight and Reform, and she has led on issues ranging from expanding transit justice and ensuring an equitable public health response to COVID-19 to ending discriminatory credit practices and keeping families safely housed. 


So far this cycle, Congresswoman Pressley has also endorsed Rep. Jamaal Bowman (NY-16), Rep. Mark DeSaulnier (CA-10) Rep. Rashida Tlaib (MI-12), Rep. Cori Bush (MO-01), Rep. Barbara Lee (CA-12), Rep.
